im not sure any of you remember a thread I posted here a year or so ago about my wife Jamie’s Aloha trailer. It’s a 64 and she spent a lot of time and love on it and we’ve used it quite a bit. The problem is, the layout just wasn’t working. It has a fold out couch that goes across the passenger side. With it folded out into a bed, and the front dinette made into a bed, there was zero room inside the trailer for anything but sleeping. She had toyed with the idea of selling it and maybe buying a more modern trailer that was a little roomier. All summer she kind of “shopped” but no newer trailer really peaked her interest. Last week I was winding down and doing what I do nearly every night- checking out the local Facebook market place looking for stuff I don’t need. I saw an ad for a decent looking 58 Shasta and said “Jamie check this out”. Her eyes lit up and she said “see if they still have it!”. So I sent a message and found ourselves looking at it the next evening after work. The owners name was Starla. She is a self proclaimed “trailer junky” and had three vintage trailers. She needed to sell one and said the Shasta she was least attached to. She had purchased it the year before from the dry desert area of central WA, where it had not been licensed since 1963! We looked the trailer over and was delighted how this Shasta has a bed across the back. With it folded out there is still plenty of room to use the ice box, sink or counter. My wife made an offer and we bought it. Starla has spent a year cleaning and cleaning the old trailer up, re-shellacked the wood, and just tried to make it as nice as she could while leaving it’s original charm. The trailer is all original paint, wood, linoleum, etc. Jamie is in love with it and decided to name it “Starla” after the lady she bought it from. We set it up in our back yard Saturday and spent our 7 year anniversary in it as the kids could not wait to test it out.
